Too Hot or Too Cold? Keeping the Voltage on Your Delta-8 Vape Cartridge Just Right

The best invention this century besides Delta-8 THC itself has definitely been vaping. Thanks to vaping, all of us can enjoy the wonders of things like CBD and Delta-8 THC through excellent clean vapor with delicious sweet flavors. Vaping has been an absolute revelation in the world of hemp and cannabinoids, changing how we consume them, how we enjoy them, and really, how we do everything with them.

Vaping is a technological marvel, one that brings a 21st century feel to an old-school pastime. But, like any new technology, it means we all have to become experts. When our mods break down or when our cartridges run too hot, or any number of issues can cause us havoc. A busted vaping device can ruin the entire Delta-8 THC experience. 

And really, nobody wants a vape device to kill their buzz.

“Vaping has now become a dedicated art form,” the Guardian wrote a few years back. “Last year, two shops opened in London ... for connoisseurs in search of vaping nirvana. The outré can satisfy both smoking and sci-fi fantasies with e-cigs that resemble a range of airborne vessels from Battlestar Galactica to stealth bombers. You can [buy a] kit to match your mobile phone or match your e-liquid to your mood... There is even an option for granddads (it's never too late): a Sherlock Holmes-style calabash e-pipe.”

In other words, vaping is here to stay, and it is oh so very… popular, dare we say. Where once you saw John Wayne smoking a cigarette as the epitome of cool, now it’s some art nouveau hipsters vaping Delta-8 that are making the style pages of all the magazines. Listen, we love vaping as much as the next person. And we especially love vaping Delta-8 THC. But it’s essential that we all do it correctly.

When you buy a vape cartridge, either from Liquid Gold or 10x or Chill Plus, you need to be like Goldilocks and keep that temperature just right. If your vape is not hot enough or too cold as it were, your Delta-8 vape liquid won’t vaporize properly, leaving you with a pretty flat buzz. Keep the voltage too high, and you run the risk of burning your oil. That’s where many people end up with a burnt taste in their Delta-8 vape cartridges — and trust us; no one wants that!

So what should you do?

Well, here at Diamond CBD, we put our best team of scientists on the case. We tested out all of our best brands of Delta-8 THC at every temperature, so you don’t have to. And now, we can tell you how to keep the voltage on your Delta-8 vape cartridge just right.

A Little Story About Vaping Delta-8 THC

So you want to vape Delta-8 THC? Sure, gummies are great, but these days all of the big kids are outside with their vapes, and you want to be just like them. We don’t blame you. There’s nothing better than taking a few puffs off of your Liquid Gold Delta-8 THC Vape Cartridge and feeling the buzz slowly creep across your head and down to your toes. It is truly a magical thing. 

That’s because Delta-8 THC is an all-natural, hemp-extracted cannabinoid derived from CBD. It’s calming, uplifting, relaxing, and euphoric. Most importantly — and let’s be honest, it’s the reason you’re all here — Delta-8 THC offers users a smooth but subtle psychotropic buzz that keeps your head clear. There’s no paranoia and no anxiety, just pure, unadulterated euphoria that goes on for miles. It’s an experience that will change the way you see the world.

And believe it or not, Delta-8 THC is one of the newer compounds on the consumer market today. There’s not much research about it, but the folks who do that sort of thing are learning more every day. We know that Delta-8 is one of the four major compounds found in the hemp plant. The other three include:

  • THC
  • CBD
  • Cannabinol

Alas, Delta-8 is a minor cannabinoid. It’s not found in large quantities in hemp, but with new extraction processes, we’re able to use all-natural CBD and make large amounts of Delta-8 safely. It’s still 100% all-natural, 100% derived from hemp, and 100% legal. And it’s very, very cool.

“You may not have heard of it, but Delta-8 THC is a double bond isomer of the more common delta-9 THC,” wrote Heady Vermont recently. “While it may not be as strong as delta-9, delta-8 THC is still more than capable of giving an individual a mild high – along with a host of potential therapeutic benefits.”

And the best way to enjoy Delta-8 THC? Why it’s vaping, of course!

Too Hot or Too Cold? Keeping the Voltage on Your Delta-8 Vape Cartridge Just Right
So what should you do? If you want optimal performance (and buzz) from your Delta-8 THC Vape Cartridges, keep your voltage in the 3’s. Expressly, set your battery between 3.3 and 3.8 volts.

How to Keep the Voltage Just Right on Your Delta-8 THC Vape Cartridge

But you all know about Delta-8. What you really want to know about is your Delta-8 THC vape cartridge. Maybe you’ve burnt just a few too many. Or perhaps your vape juice isn’t vaporizing properly. If this is happening to you, chances are your voltage on your mod or vaping device isn’t quite right. And until you adjust things, you’re going to have the same problem over and over again.

So what should you do? If you want optimal performance (and buzz) from your Delta-8 THC Vape Cartridges, keep your voltage in the 3’s. Expressly, set your battery between 3.3 and 3.8 volts. That way, you won’t burn, and it won’t be too cool. As our friend Goldilocks liked to say, everything will be just right — and Goldilocks loved a good Delta-8 buzz!

Remember, this isn't just an issue of flavor. Not only can a voltage that’s too high start to make your Delta-8 taste burnt, but it can also make the cannabinoids degrade. And when that happens, your buzz starts to fade. On the opposite end, if your voltage isn’t high enough, your buzz will never reach its peak. And let’s just say there’s a reason they call it a “high.”

So keep your Delta-8 Vape Cartridge voltage right down the middle. Now, a lot of this depends on the type of battery you have. And if you’re the type of person who puffs away at your vape, you can end up burning things out no matter what the voltage. So, all things in moderation. 

Now that you know, grab some Delta-8 THC Vape Cartridges from Diamond CBD, and enjoy. And take the perfect puff on us!
